Trundle's tree change
CAN one dollar save a country town?
It can certainly give it a kickstart, as the people of the small New South Wales town of Trundle have discovered.
With a declining population threatening the future of the farming community, the Trundle Tree Change Committee was formed to find a way of enticing newcomers to the bush.
Five abandoned farmhouses were offered up for just a $1 a week and it turns out plenty of families were willing to up stakes for such cheap rent, 400 in fact.
Similar schemes have rejuvenated towns in Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland.
The difference with Trundle is that cameras were there for an entire year to film the experiment.
The result is a six-part documentary series from Andrew Denton's production company, Zapruder's other films.
